We hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the sunshine; we are so excited that the rain held off for the first rain free wedding weekend in months! We are kicking off the week with a Frederick Maryland wedding full of color, laughter, and personal details at Milton Ridge. Becca and Matt wanted to host a day that incorporated personal touches from their family such as their wedding cake baked by her sister-in-law and ceremony chuppah created by the groom. Instead of using a singular color story idea, they had a bevy of colors across the rainbow since the Bride is an art teacher. We loved their fun watercolor escort card display during cocktail hour and bright cheery florals! Thank you to the couple and Kira Nicole Photography for sharing their fun wedding with us!
From the Bride: “The priority was the wedding we wanted the ceremony to be a main part not just the thing before the wedding! We spent a lot of time in the planning of our vows and the flow of the wedding. Splurging was probably on the dress! We skipped on a dj and alcohol but I like the way it turned out. I didn’t feel like they were missed. ”
“My husbands favorite detail was our chuppah! He grew up messianic Jew and we wanted to make sure that God was clearly the center of our marriage. My sister-in-law made our AMAZING Cake and my cousin made our flower arrangement. I created the seating tags and numbers and invites and soap dishes for the favors! I also put together the dj list using the wedding dj app! “
Advice rom the couple: “Enjoy it! Being engaged is a wonderful season. Also if you are going the homemade route like we did take things slow, start early and ask for help. I also recommend pre-marriage counseling ”
Congratulations to Becca and Matt! Thank you for sharing your colorful Milton Ridge wedding in Washington DC with us!
